TSSW Alumni, Angela Savage (’18) Named Social Work Educator of the Year

Tulane’s School of Social Work is proud to announce that their Doctorate of Social Work alumna, Angela Savage (’18), is being recognized as this year’s Social Work Educator of the Year, by the Alabama/Mississippi Social Work Educators Conference.

Established in 1972, the Alabama/Mississippi Social Work Educators Conference is the oldest regional social work education conference, last year celebrating its 50th anniversary. The conference aims to promote the transfer of information between Mississippi and Alabama schools providing social welfare education courses; provide a forum for issues and problems of regional importance; and allow social workers to be more responsive to the changing demands of social work education.

“It’s an honor to receive this prestigious award from my colleagues in social work education and to be recognized as the Social Work Educator of the Year in Mississippi is unbelievable,” said Savage. “This award is for the students at MSU-Meridian. I could not do what I love as an educator without them. They continue to motivate and inspire me to do what I love for the profession.”

Savage currently serves as president of the Mississippi Chapter of National Association of Social Workers, or NASW, and was named the NASW Social Worker of the Year last year.
